April 30, 2007, 9:02 PM UTC

Just a few ways to be profitably and pleasantly (if uselessly) employed, from Stanley Bing’s book, “100 Bulls**t Jobs and How to Get Them” (Harper Collins).

A reader in San Diego writes:

Monitor Medical Research Budget. If the Researcher spends more money than budgeted, notify the NIH grant manager to get more money for said budget. If the Researcher doesn’t spend enough notify the researcher to spend more money or risk loosing future money to said budget.

Pay: $60,000/year

work: 1 hour a day the rest surfing web and ocean.

Readers, what do you think? Is this a bulls**t job?
